Groups sue to halt key parts of Texas abortion law

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — More than a dozen women’s health providers have filed a federal lawsuit to block key provisions of a new abortion law that threw the Texas Legislature into chaos as it was approved.

Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union teamed up with the providers to sue Texas.

They filed their challenge today in Austin.

The law requires doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, only allows abortions in surgical centers and bans the procedure after 20 weeks. It also limits medical abortions.

The measure passed after a much-watched Democratic filibuster and protests on both sides of the issue at the Capitol.

The suit seeks injunctions blocking rules mandating that physicians have hospital admitting privileges and limiting medical abortions. Both take effect Oct. 29.

Women Have The Right To Choose If They Carry a child to Term.. There is To Much Rape & incest in This Country. Most Women don't Report because of shame and the court systems.. I had my 3 Kids But If I ever Got PG again Id terminate Even Though Ive been fixed for many yrs.To Many Children Are Killed By a Parent, Foster Parents, Child Molesters and Child Killers, Some People Should Never Have A child. I believe Abortion is a Woman;s Right. No an Inborn Child Has No Right Until 20 weeks when you start feeling them moving in your body.. 20 wk=5 month You start Feeling That Child Within you To me That's when it is a Child. I do believe They should Back it Off to 16 wks or 4 months , Even adopted parents beat and mistreat there adopted children. My Boyfriend Was Adopted and His Adopted Mother Beat Him Severely. She Has Since Died But He Still Hates Her.and is glad she is dead. He loved His Adopted Father He was Good To Him,. See Adoption Is not Always a Happy Ending So Abortion Is

cheybaby2: You say it's ok to abort before 20 weeks because you can't feel the child within you? There are women who deliver full term who did not know they were pregnant. Roe v Wade chose 20 weeks because at that time it was the point that a baby was able to live outside the womb. Now babies survive at even fewer weeks gestation. We consider a person dead when there is no longer a heartbeat, why not alive when there is one?

Abortion is not birth control.
